Rotting Tree Trunk - Knowledgebase Question

Question by jule7717

I have a cherry blossom tree in my yard that seems to have what appears to be a dead trunk, but the tree is still blooming every year. Is there anything I could use or do to treat this trunk back to health? I really would like to keep it if I can. It even is split toward the bottom.

Unfortunately, based on your decription, it sounds like the tree is in serious trouble and may not be sound. I would strongly suggest you consult with a professionally trained arborist about the health and prognosis of the tree because it may even be dangerous. In general, these trees are subject to any number of problems and often are not terribly long lived. I'm sorry about your tree.
